'Drill Bit' simulation project by v_srivastava


I created a new simulation project called 'Drill Bit':

Heat flowing through a drill bit

More of my public projects can be found here.


A thermal simulation, following the way heat travels through a drill bit. The simulation has been performed with a temperature boundary condition, which is not practical in real-world applications, but still manages to give a good first test-simulation. The heat travels through the body from the front of the drill bit, and the heat carries on to the back. A steady-state simulation was not practical with a temperature boundary condition, as it leads to the whole body being raised up to the boundray condition temperature. A transient simulation, on the other hand, can help us show the temperature evolving in 'real' time, and help us to understand the heat flow through the body.
